I was in a meeting today and we were discussing the hiring process. The discussion got a little heated and I made a comment that really must of set one of the people off.
She yelled at me. I mean, really yelled, like she was losing control or something. Normally, we don't have that kind of behavior where I work; it's pretty civil. Moreover, I grew up getting yelled at so it didn't really bother me. However, all the other people in the meeting were really shocked by it and I'm sure they are thinking that I felt insulted and offended, but the truth is it doesn't bother me at all. After all, it wasn't me doing the yelling; it was this other person who is kind of always ready to split apart into a million pieces anyway.
So, it got me to thinking what the workplace environment is for others. Ever had anybody lose it in a meeting you were attending?
